I spent Two days and nights at this hotel in late spring. The hotel is clean with friendly staff. Beds are comfortable but rooms do have some noise, nothing to keep you up though. The gym is small but has enough to get by on your trip. I never used the pool or hot tube but looked fine. Free wifi worked well enough.
The food and drinks are on the pricey side but welcome to Canmore I guess!
I would stay here again and wouldn’t worry to bring a family here.
Friendly staff, clean rooms, great service
I stayed in this hotel for 3 nights during a recent conference, and had a very pleasant stay. The room was clean, the housekeeping staff was great, and the in-room coffeemaker actually made good coffee (which so rarely happens in hotel rooms these days!). I did not use the fitness center but did take a look and saw that the only treadmill was out of order, but really, in Canmore, there are so many trails that it’d be quite silly to run inside (at least when it’s warm outside).
I believe the hotel provided all the catering for the conference, and the food was great – the breakfast in particular was probably the best conference breakfast I’ve had, however I had a friend who was vegan who did not feel she had very many options (granola was probably about it). And where most conferences might only offer deli meats for lunch, the Coast offered roasted chicken, lasagna, homemade chips, and a lot of delicious salads. And cheesecake for dessert!
The internet was super. I always have issues with hotel wifi but this one worked perfectly.
All my interactions with hotel staff, from check-in to check-out, were very positive. The staff seemed to make extra effort to be friendly and help whenever there were issues; there was a minor issue when I checked in, and I was tempted to get irritated, but the staff had it solved in no time and were so friendly about it I felt a little guilty for thinking about being irritated.
All in all, a great setting, great food, great staff, and a great hotel!

Average Hotel in a Beautiful Place
My husband and I stayed one night at the Coast Canmore Hotel since an event we were attending was being held in one of their conference rooms. We were arriving on the day of the event, which started at 3 p.m. I called ahead to inquire if we could check in ahead of their stated 4 p.m. time since we wanted to get in prior to attending the event. They said they wouldn’t know until that day but they’d put a note on my file. Luckily I’m experienced enough to understand that really meant no, so I wasn’t surprised when we got there at 2:30 p.m. and were denied early check-in. No problem, we thought, we’d just go to the restaurant for a drink for the half hour before the event started. We got seated, were given menus and then the server disappeared. So, around 2:55 we just left. At this point they were 0 for 2 for service.
The hotel itself is quite nice. We had a room on the first floor with a nice patio door and outside deck. The view was not much to speak of. Our king-sized bed was very comfortable and there were two bottles of water and a coffee machine with two servings of coffee. The room had a huge T.V., a comfy chair, a desk and was quite roomy. The bathroom, on the other hand, was tiny and a little worn out looking. I did like the layout of the room – outside of the bathroom was a little nook area that had the coffee setup, so I thought it was great that I could make coffee in the morning without disturbing my husband too much. However, the outlet didn’t work in the nook and I had to move the coffee machine to the floor in the bedroom area. So much for being quiet.
We ordered room service and it was prompt and the service was friendly. They do offer free Wi-Fi.
I’m not sure I would stay there again.
Great facility to host a conference or small meeting
We used one of Coasts meeting rooms to host a small meeting, staff was helpful in setting up the room. Noticed they have a bigger room that would be useful for a trade show or banquet. We spent 3 nights in the hotel, our room was nice and clean. All meals in the restaurant were fantastic and service was good.

Good location, good staff
The hotel is situated just outside the town centre. Unlike many of the other hotels along the Bow Valley Trail, the Coast is situated far from the railway line, which allows for a restful night. The staff are very helpful but mildly forgetful. We did not have any tissues or toilet paper left after a 4 day stay and the housekeeping staff did not replenish our supply. The room and bathroom were clean. There was a decent sized pool and hot tub. The restaurant is overpriced but does an acceptable job. All in all, a decent stay for an acceptable price.
